Scholarships, Awards, and Study Abroad Opportunities

In addition to scholarships available through IUPUI, the school offers a variety of scholarships, awards and study-abroad opportunities for both incoming and current undergraduate students. In general, most applications are due March 1 annually.  The scholarships listed below are available for one recipient, unless otherwise noted. Students may download the applications below.

In addition, several university and school scholarships consider financial need when determining eligibility. Students interested in those applications should be sure to submit their FAFSA forms each year, generally in January and February.

Typically, scholarships are applied directly to student Bursar accounts. Scholarships of $1,000 or more are commonly divided in equal amounts between the fall and spring semesters.  Special considerations, including income tax implications, may apply to study abroad travel awards. Sometimes, scholarships may affect financial aid. Students with questions may contact the financial aid office.

This document lists all scholarships in the school that require an application.
